We love the canyon and find it hard to go nearby without stopping. It was very crowded getting in and parking was packed. School was not even out yet; it was a zoo of people and cars.
We parked at the market and walked a ways to the rim. The market was one of the few places that had parking as it is not on the rim itself.
We hiked along the rim and a bit of ways down the Bright Angel Trail. We wanted to get to Lone Rock on Lake Powell before dark, so we didn't stay too long.

After seeing this picture, a friend gave Greg the book "Over the Edge, Death in the Grand Canyon"
|That IS truly a grand canyon!|
